In 1997, Kurt and I maxed out credit cards, bought a van, rented a warehouse….and Winegardner’s Wines was born. Meeting and marrying Kurt would set the course for the next 20 years and counting. The passionate and dynamic world of wine keeps me excited and engaged every day. France and French wines are the catalyst for the business. The smartest thing Kurt ever did was to secure the Kermit Lynch portfolio right from the start. The 2nd smartest thing Kurt and I did together, was to bring Briana into the company. When I’m not working, I’m being grandma to Carter and Adella. Or painting. Or traveling. Or….what’s ahead?
